He made some donations and spent time with the team, according Dabish tabloid Tipsbladet.

The midfielder was seen playing with the disabled squad as he cooled down talks of where he will be playing next season.

Brentford are still in hunt for his signature, and its looks like he may stay in west London for at least for another season.

Manchester United’s offer is still on the table, even though it is known that he would prefer to stay in London.

There are also concerns on whether he would get to be the main man at Manchester United, with the club quite keen on signing Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.

United also have Bruno Fernandes, who was one of the best players in the team last season, and Eriksen would have to share minutes with the Portuguese maestro if he moved to Old Trafford.

Tottenham have also been linked with their former star, and have the lure of Champions League football.

The offer from Brentford would easily make him the highest paid player in the club’s history and the burden that brings is that the club will have to adjust their entire financial structure.

The fact that he is yet to decide where he will be play gives Brentford hope that he could yet come back to them, after excelling with a goal and four assists in the 11 games.

Eriksen’s impact on the Bees was more than just figures, as he increased the standard of everyone at the club.

Brentford finished 13th in the league but haven’t been able to add to the squad, with their main transfer target being the Danish midfielder.
